New Watch Faces turn Moto 360’s flat tire into Little Worlds

The first-gen Moto 360 may soon have a follow up since we’ve been seeing a lot of leaked photos lately. The Motorola smartwatch was also recently made available in Moto Maker so anyone can customize his own Moto 360 while Google even slashed off a hundred bucks from its original price. The company has great plans for the the smartwatch line but like any gadget or device introduced in the market today, it’s not a stranger to comments and snide remarks. One of the most memorable comments is that “flat tire” that you can see at the bottom of the screen.

Google Store slashes price of Moto 360

The Moto 360 is one of the smartwatch models I've been personally eyeing but there are too many choices out there that it's hard to decide. But this could be The One now for me as Google Store slashed off the Moto 360's price from $250 down to $165. That's a huge discount there but Google wasn't the only one who did lower the price of the Android Wear smartwatch. Best Buy and Amazon also cut off $100 from any variant of the Moto 360--resulting to more people able buying the Moto 360 in any material or color they want.

Picture of supposed new Moto 360 smartwatch leaked on Weibo

While there are a growing number of players in the smartwatch market, one of the earliest OEMs to have made their mark in the market is Motorola and its Moto 360. Supposedly, it was the first round-faced Android Wear device to come out, but LG G Watch R beat them to the punch in terms of launching. And while the Moto 360 received stellar reviews, it just went quiet all of a sudden. However, a new image leaked on China's social networking giant might see the revival of the smartwatch.

Motorola isn’t keen on tablets, suggests Lenovo Yogas

If you've been holding out for a bigger Motorola device, better stop holding your breath. The Nexus 6 might actually be the closest you'll get to a large Motorola screen. Company president and COO Rick Osterloh revealed on Twitter, in no uncertain terms, that Motorola currently has no plans on making tablets. While that definitely doesn't leave out future possibilities, there is one possible and practical reason why Motorola wouldn't want to.
